Awesome Wonder is what you get when you combine a charismatic worship enthusiast, a flawlessly tight band, and a knockdown-dragout choir. Complete with soaring soloists, an interactive congregation, and the heaven-sparked Kurt Carr presiding over the festivities, the Kurt Carr Singers do church in a praisin'-God-forever-and-stompin'-on-the-Devil kind of way. Although the music is done up with all of the pomp and flare imaginable, its content has a simplicity that penetrates the heart to inspire childlike praise. This third project from singer, composer, and producer Kurt Carr has set the standard for declaration of God's power. Even the more intimate moments have heart-rending qualities in their unfolding of God's goodness. But, putting the "Hallelujah!" back into the praise, several of these songs turn up the heat, until the easy-going celebration turns into ecstatic jubilation; this offers the most memorable draw of the disc. The intensity will cause a longing to be at the live show, which is the only thing that possibly could be better. --Israel Button

"I honestly never thought that there could ever be a way to top or even come close to the last album "No One Else", but this new album "Awesome Wonder" is running neck-in-neck. In the three year hiatus between albums the Kurt Carr singers have made a few minor cast changes. After the disbanding of Kesha Ealy, LA Mass Choir veteran, Nicole Potts ["Jesus Never Fails"] took her place and after the disbanding of Corey Briggs, New Jersey import, Troy Bright, a former CD Hawkins Singer, takes his place. Despite the cast changes, the sound remains the same.
Backed by West Angeles COGIC's Choir Of Life, the recording starts off with "In The Sanctuary", a rousing worship and praise song, which modulates into the heavens. Then there's the forceful yet fun praise song "We Declare War", led by Kurt Carr and Jackie Boyd-De Raat, after that is "O My Soul Loves Jesus" , a beautiful praise song led by Nicole Potts. Then there's the rousing "I Almost Let Go", led by Sherron Bennett along with Choir Of Life member Tisa Wills. Then there's the hot, salsa flavored "We Offer You Praise", led by Carr and the proclaimed "First Lady of Worship and Praise", Judy McAllister the song is played by Alberto Salas and his band. Then there's the down home Charles G. Hayes meets Kurt Carr flavored "Jesus Can Work It Out" with Shervonne Wells leading with spectacular ad-libs on the drive. After this is the "Worship Medley", beautifully led by Yvette Williams. Then there's something we wouldn't expect from Kurt Carr, an urban song. The title track. "Awesome Wonder" thought it has a worship and praise feel to it has a hot urban beat and edge mixed with the Kurt Carr singers vocals, the song is hot! After that is the beautiful "The Blood Still Has Miraculous Power", lead by Yvette Williams and then there's the sizzling hot jam "At All Times", lead by Jackie Boyd-De Raat and Nicole Potts. Then the most beautiful song on the entire album "That's Just The Way The Father Is", smoothly led by Kurt Carr's newest singer, native New Jersean, Troy Bright and to end the album the singers do exactly what the titles says, they "Set The Atmosphere" for a blessing from the Lord.
I was blessed by this album and I'm sure you will be to. This album is beautiful and indeed a must have!"
